This page shares the presentation slides that I made and used myself to teach Japanese to intermediate or advanced learners. The majority of the slides focus on unique and useful Japanese expressions, including Japanese slang and idioms (just like the blog posts on this website). Feel free to use those slides to enrich your Japanese knowledge. You are also welcome to use those slides to teach Japanese to someone, so long as you cite and mention this website (All rights reserved).
(If you’re a complete beginner who is keen to learn Japanese with zero knowledge in slides, see this page.)
Click the titles below to view the slides. Each section should correspond to roughly a 30~60 min class. Most of the slides are also uploaded on my Instagram (with the slides divided into multiple posts).
